It is strongly recommended (by all UV manufacturers) for maximum efficiency of your UV Sterilization, that you pre-filter your water with a 5 Micron sediment cartridge.
Do not connect plastic pipe or tubing directly to the UV system because the UV light will break down plastic over time. The best way to make the connection is with Dielectric Unions that allow for a connection from stainless steel to copper, that will not corrode.
The UV Max Model B4 is for low flow applications.
The UV Max line features a controller with water resistant case, indicator lights on the power source show the status of each system component. A stainless steel chamber with safety cap (can not be removed while light is on) and special lamp plug are standard.
Trojan's Model B4 offers the advanced features that used cost much more. With disinfection available from 4-11 GPM, Model B4 is ideal for household or light commercial use.
All UV Max Systems include all components and accessories needed for initial installation and use. These include UV Lamp, Electronic Ballast, Quartz Sleeve & 304 Stainless Steel UV Reactor (Water Chamber).
Trojan UV Systems treat the water for the whole home, eliminating 99.99% of bacteria and viruses including chlorine-resistant cysts that are not tested for in routine water tests (such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia)
Water is purified by running it through a watertight chamber that contains an ultraviolet lamp. As water flows past, microorganisms are exposed to a lethal dose of germicidal UV energy.
Purification with the UV Max is a safe, natural process that adds no chemicals and does not affect the taste or odor of your water.
Specialized, high output UV lamps maximize the output of germicidal UV energy.
